This Grilled Pinoy Pork Chop is your basic Filipino Grilled Pork Chop Recipe. Instead of the usual soy sauce and lemon juice marinade, this requires simple seasonings such as salt, pepper, and garlic powder to be mixed in low fat oil. Both olive and safflower oils are low in fat and cholesterol. These are the 2 types of oil in my kitchen these days. You can still follow this pork chop recipe using your regular vegetable, canola, and corn oils though. What if you don’t use any oil? We can still make a delicious pork chop dish even if we do not use oil. However, the texture will be a bit dry.
If you haven’t gone grilling yet during the summer, this is the chance to heat-up your grill to make your own delicious lunch before fall arrives. It will also be a good idea to cook an extra cup or two of rice since you will surely need more than the usual when you start tasting the result of this pork chop recipe. Trust me on this.
